New report says brownfield sites have space for 1.3 million homes


The potential of brownfield land – land that’s previously been built on, and now sits derelict or vacant – is something that CPRE are passionate about.  We want to see this neglected land be recycled and used for housing, especially where it can be repurposed and used instead of Green Belt or open country.

Covered in the Telegraph on 20th October , the report shows our West Midlands area alone contains enough brownfield land to build just under 100,000 new homes.
